Entry period begins for Burnham-On-Sea 'Battle Of The Bands' contest

Entries are being welcomed for Burnham-On-Sea's first ever 'battle of the bands', to be held in the town next month.

The organisers of Burnham's Folkfest have launched the 'Acoustic Battle of the Bands' competition, which will be held on Friday June 8th from 7-11pm at The Princess Theatre and Arts Centre.

Ten solo artists, duos or groups will each perform three songs live, only one of which can be a cover, and the winners will be awarded slots on the Saturday and Sunday of FolkFest 2012 plus a day's recording time at the acclaimed Beehive Studios in Middlezoy.

FolkFest Chairman Dom Wills told "The battle is open to all ages. We're trying to promote live performance and original songwriting in the area. It should be a cracking night's entertainment too."

Entry forms are available online here and should be accompanied with a cheque for £5 plus examples of your songs and music, either on CD, MP3 or online.

Tickets for audience members are also available, priced at £2, from the Princess Box Office on 01278 784464.
